Falling Awake is an original graphic novel written and drawn by Carl Mefferd. The story begins in a logging town nestled in the Pacific Northwest, where a sullen teenager spends each night dreaming of a bizarre land...   

 ...filled with fantastical creatures.

At the same time in a ruin-strewn valley, a young huntress from a tribe of plant-people spends each night dreaming of a world of cars, TV's, and high school. 

 

 Both girls think their dreams are nothing but their own fantasy, but when they each discover a mysterious cabin appearing in both places, they learn there's far more at work.

Falling Awake has been a passion project for creator Carl Mefferd, who has crafted every word and panel in the book. It will be an 88 page graphic novel with a full color cover and black and white interior. 

We are looking to the Kickstarter community to raise money for book's the printing costs.
